ITL / CEEC 2016 : Special Session on Immersive Technologies and Learning at CEEC 2016
Call For Papers
Immersive Technologies, such as Virtual Reality (VR), Augmented Reality (AR), head-mounted displays, haptic devices, etc., give people a sense of “Being There”. They are used every day as standalone applications in areas such as computer games or telepresence video conferences among others. A particular use of these technologies is in educational settings, where they can enhance learning experiences, foster participation, collaboration, creativity and engagement; creating huge opportunities for integration and research.
This special session, organised in partnership with the Immersive Learning Research Network (iLRN), aims at gathering not only leading researchers, but also young researchers as well as practitioners and developers in this field who research applications of Immersive Technologies in learning.
Researchers are hereby invited to submit a full paper (5-6 pages) detailing their research, or a short paper (max 4 pages) describing their work-in-progress. All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviewing by at least two reviewers for technical merit, significance and relevance to the topics. Further information is available from the CEEC 2016 website http://www.ceec.uk. Submission implies the willingness of at least one author per paper to register, attend the conference and present the paper. Proceedings will be published on IEEE Xplore. Authors of selected articles will be invited to submit an extended version to a Special Issue of the Computers journal (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/computers/special_issues/ceec_2016).
